About the Event

Join The Sunnywood Project for this exciting family adventure that starts from Bolton Street East Lancashire Railway Station.

Venturing along the beautiful, well-established country trail paths, you will walk for a distance that suits you, ending your walk at one of the three ELR stations situated along the route. Once you’ve reached your chosen station, you will board the train with your free ticket for a return trip back to the starting point at Bolton Street Station, Bury.

Your options:

  • Bolton Street Station to Burrs Country Park Station (1.5 miles)
  • Bolton Street Station to Summerseat Station (3.3 miles)
  • Bolton Street Station to Ramsbottom (5 miles)

There is no requirement to commit to a distance before booking, as your ticket will enable you to board a return train from any of the three stations along the route; our friendly Walk Leaders will be on hand to guide and support you no matter what distance you choose.

The route starts from Bolton Street Station, Bury making its way to the first stop at the Burrs Country Park. From here, the route passes over waterways and through ancient woodland up to Summerseat where the second station is located. The final section of the route continues with a little hill climb and passes through Nuttall Park from which the final station is not far from.

This is a free event but donations are welcome to help support, develop and sustain the current and future Sunnywood Project Youth Programmes and Community Activities.


Registration is between 9:00-9.45am on the 1st September

Guided Hike: setting off at 10:00am
